Writing a Discussion Section

Approaches to writing the discussion section

Sample discussion sections

Note that these samples were all from solo projects. Collaborative thinking and writing are crucial in your discussion section, even if you took a "divide and conquer" approach to the rest of the paper. This is the one section of the paper where a lack of communication and collaboration among group members can become apparent. You should commit to spending extensive time exploring the implications of your research as a group (in conversation and in writing) as you draft and revise your discussion session.
